Best solid bed cover for ME.....

Hey guys,I'm new to this forum but I'm over on the 6.0 forum pretty regular,and I've got a question for ya'll. I have an '06 f-250 xlt srw sc 6.0l 8'bed. I want a bed cover to keep my stuff dry and safe from theft. I have looked at some of the covers avail. on the web but I don't know anyone personally that has one to look at in person. I like the Bak Flip type covers from what I can tell on their web site but I do have some questions. One thing that stands out is the drain tubes in the corners. I would think that they would freeze up in the winter causing every bit of water that hits the cover to seep in around the edges at some point. If anyone can shed some light on this as well as some other pros and cons that I might not have thought about it would be greatly appreciated. Also,I want to haul an ATV from time to time so it has to fold up pretty easily to allow for this.If it weren't for the ATV I would prob. just get a shell. Any insight or suggestions are appreciated. Thanks in advance!!

Old post, but how about a DiamondBack cover (which is a folding cover)? You can put the ATV on top of the cover and still use your bed to store stuff. You can't do that with a Bakflip.

If you bed is long enougth, you can also get a cover that positions the ATV front to back (as opposed to side to side as in this picture).

Diamondback toppers rock! If I could figure out how to post pictures of what I have hauled on top while still having my tools locked inside I would.

Check out Peragon.com You can have this cover for under $600 shipped, it's built in Northern Minnesota so it's able to withstand the harsh northern winters and it looks damned good too. Additionally, it can be installed in a short time and can be removed in about 30 seconds.

Looking into a cover for my 2011 F150 as well. I have some concerns about the snow ans ice build up that these covers will acquire. Can anyone share their experience here? So far I'm leaning toward the bakflip. The only thing I DONT like is that when folded it hides the entire back viewing area on the rear window.

If your abit of a handy man, and cheap

You can make your own like I had on my F250.

2x4 frame, with 2x4 cross members across, and covered with 1/4" plywood, with a thick sheet metal to cover it all up. Sure looked alot nicer 7 years ago when I first made it.... So did the truck


And at the same time, it adds weight over the rear wheels for winter.


You'll also notice that rusty railing on the side, with 3 chain links welded to it, that's been there since the truck was brand new, made it my self, very handy for tie downs!
